Mini Taco Salad

Many have asked for the “recipe” for the mini taco salad and pico de gallo served at the event. So, here it is! This is great for summer parties and graduations with its easy Grab and Go capability! Add some Sangria and let the fiesta begin!

IMG_5035-picoPico De Gallo

Sun Ripe Tomatoes, cubed
Red or Spanish onion, chopped
Jalapeno (de-seed for less spice)
Cilantro
Dash of Salt
Squeeze of Lime

There is no measuring here. It’s all taste. Don’t like onions much? Don’t add as many. Love Cilantro? Add alot. Use Mini Key limes to garnish. Don’t have time to make it? Jewel has it by the container in the deli department.¬†Mini 2oz. Margarita glasses available at Party City.
